Self-Discipline Day 19 of – Are You Staying Connected?

Hey Everybody!

I hope you’re all well and wonderful. If not, hold on tight as this too shall pass.

Yesterday I suggested you connect with your source.

Today I suggest you examine your daily routine and assess your schedule and priorities.  Is connecting and communing with your source something you have space and time for?

Do you make time daily to get yourself focused and re-energized?

What we do daily are our habits and excellence is all about habit and conscious effort to excel.

So, how are you crafting the best possible you?

Are you leaving this vital job up to chance?

To get the best out of life, you have to consciously put the best into it. We must sow that which we hope to reap.

To get to the best of your magnificent self, to keep yourself at your highest and best, to remain motivated and energized, to maintain your self-discipline at a “10” you MUST have a specific and customized daily plan that gets executed DAILY and specifically.

While it’s nice to connect with our source regularly what is necessary for consistent excellence is constant connection.

This is only possible with daily deliberate activity.

Determine today what your connection activities will be – if you don’t already have a series of things you do to maintain your connection to your source of power.

A commitment to these daily activities is essential if you hope to remain empowered and motivated. There is SO much negativity around us, we have to do our best to remain on our chosen path.

As you attempt to mold the best you possible…creating a habit of self-discipline… all kinds of obstacles pop up [some even internal] and having the strength to stay the course is only possible if you are connected to your source.

An additional benefit to doing a few things every day is the additional SELF-DISCIPLINE you create…this self-discipline spills into every area of your life.

Again, how are you crafting the best possible you? Is it just a goal you have with few supporting activities?

  • Decide what to put into your mind and heart before bed and as you rise.
  • Decide how to start your day, understanding that how you start is often how it goes…
  • Decide and commit to the those daily activities designed to connect you to your source.
  • Decide how others well benefit from your excellence.

Have fun with these reflections and decisions.

Wishing you an abundance of peace, light and love,

Self-Discipline, Day 18 – Connect to Your Source!

Hello!

Today is day 18 of our 21-day self discipline program, the first part of our 75-day journey together! Can you believe how fast the days are flying by? Seems like we were just on day 1!

So…here’s what I suggest you do today:

1) Be clear on what the source of your life, your power, your joy, your peace is…

2) Do whatever you do to connect. How do you plug into the source of your power? What are your activities for connection?

3) Write in your journal“What are trying to accomplish with your increased self-discipline that will benefit others?

4) Do your daily activities as usual.

5) Say hello to your accountability partner…just because.

Wishing you an abundance of love, peace, joy and love,

Self-Discipline, Day 14 – any adjustments needed?

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

———————————————————————————————————————

Hello Hello!

On this 14th day, just six days left in this 21-day, phase one of our journey and it’s a great time to take stock.

A very important role to fill in all projects and undertakings is one of “assessment officer.”

Having someone responsible for reviewing the process, making suggestions and adjustments along the way is essential.

When the project is to do with self-development, you have to be your own assessment officer.

So that’s your role todayassess how things are going: [reflect silently, write in journal, discuss with accountability partner]

1) What is going really right with the past 14 days as you participated in this program?

2) What would you like to change, stop doing or start doing??

4) What is the single most important change you would have to make with your lifestyle or mindset in order to become as self-disciplined as you would like to be?

5) What single step can you take today to begin that process of change?

6) What other questions would you add to these to get to what you deem most important about your journey?

Spend some time with this assessment process, make adjustments and share with us..we all learn so much from each other.

Wishing you a wonderful and revealing day,

Oh – btw, though tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the US, the daily activities continue… 21 days straight, remember. 🙂

Peace & Light,

Self-Discipline, Day 13…Let’s stay awhile…

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

————————————————————————————————————–

Hi there – late, I know.

It’s been such a wonderful day of giving…this time of year is particularly wonderful. Wouldn’t it be great to be thankful all through the year though? (Thanksgiving here in the US on Thursday)

…Anyway… by the nature of the responses to yesterday’s message, I am suggesting we linger here for awhile. It seemed to strike a nerve of some sort, for some.

So for today:

1)   Please consider and reflect upon Day 12’s message.
2)   Do your daily activities…as usual.
3)   Spend 5 minutes alone, be still and breathe deeply (using diaphragm) five times. Here’s a helpful article on proper breathing at ehow.com ►http://bit.ly/4mHVSh

Celebrate your unique and magnificent self!

And, as one of our members – Marguerite Orane – would say…laugh, just laugh! A lot!

That combined with some good breathing will do wonders for your heart, health and happiness.

Be well!

Self-Discipline, Day 12 – Any addictive behaviors?

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

————————————————————————————————–

WOW!!

The day just slipped away…amazing. I feels like I looked up and 7 hours elapsed.

I’ll be brief as it is so late in the day. We have participants in parts of the world where it’s already tomorrow! 🙂

We’ll continue this conversation tomorrow…for today please think about areas of your life where you might be displaying addictive behavior.

On a self-discipline scale of 1 thru 10, addictive behavior would be near a zero right? When we’re addicted we exercise no control and we seek a thing or activity with laser focus.

It seems then, useful to consider what aspects of your personality or character might have elements of addictive behaviors.

There are gray areas in addiction. Some people are quite capable of masking and concealing. But it makes no sense to go after self-control in one aspect of your life if you are not honest with what’s going on in other areas.

The fact is, try as we do, we are not compartmentalized. We are all one person. And what is done in one area spills into another.

So for today:

1)  Do a self-assessment – overall, where are you on a scale of 1 – 10 in the area of self-discipline? Compare to your earlier assessment.

2)  Reflect on all areas of your life – home, work, school, community, relationships, are there addictive behaviors to be accountable for?

3)  Before you say no, consider all the food types (sugars, carbs, etc) or other substances you must have to get through your day. Consider activities that are wrapped up in your self-image that you feel compelled to engage in. Consider your patterns – falling asleep, eating, working…that you depend upon, yet they add nothing of value to your life. They actually take away from your sense of peace and joy…ultimately. Some patterns are overtly negative, those are easy to uncover. Some, not so easy.

Think of anything that you do that feels like a strong NEED, a compelling pull on your emotions…and like the ant and the elephant (Day 9’s message) try to see what is beneath the need. Peel the onion back to reveal truth.

OK — talk to you soon…Have a wonderful day/evening!

Light & Love,
Julette

P.S. Be sure to stay in action. If you slipped, just get back on the path. If you’ve been stellar, challenge yourself further. No complacency allowed! 🙂 We only build muscle with weight/resistance.

Self-Discipline – Top Quotes

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

Greetings!

These quotes are thought provoking. Any one of them can be a lesson, a meditation or at the very least a great conversation starter.

Enjoy!

Govern thyself then you will be able to govern the world.                 Anonymous

Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you don’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward.                  Napoleon Hill

I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self. Aristotle

The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions
.   Alfred Lord Tennyson

Self respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself. Abraham Joshua

In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first.
Harry S. Truman
Rule your mind or it will rule you. Horace

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power. Lao Tzu

He who cannot obey himself will be commanded. That is the nature of living creatures. Friedrich Nietzsche

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Jim Rohn

Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
Elie Wiesel

Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power. Seneca

Discipline really means our ability to get ourselves to do things when we don’t want to
.   Arden Mahlberg

…And I believe the real mastery is to choose to WANT to do those things you once didn’t want to do IF they need to be done. Fall in love with the process and the means to that end you so desire.

Have a magnificent weekend!
Wishing you peace, joy, light and love,
